The estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was rushed to hospital in Kuala Lumpur after becoming unwell at the city's airport. Local media citing security sources say he may have poisoned by two North Korean agents.
The women broke down as they toured the Kuala Lumpur airport as part of their murder trial. Both maintain that they were tricked into smearing the deadly chemical agent, after being told it was a harmless prank.
Two women pleaded not guilty to murdering the half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un as their trial got underway in Malaysia. They deny having knowingly rubbed the toxic VX nerve agent in Kim Jong Nam's face.
Despite the fact that other suspects were not questioned, two women are the only people being tried for the murder of N. Korean exile Kim Jong Nam. Claiming they were tricked, both face the death penalty if convicted.
As the trial in Kim Jong Nam's murder case got underway in Malaysia on Monday, there's no doubt in North Korean dissident Park Sang Hak's mind as to who the real culprit was. Fabian Kretschmer reports from Seoul.
